I’ve been blogging less it seems. Once or twice every 10 days. My internal blogging alarm is naturally set to do so. And there’s a reason for that. I’ve been living and taking the necessary steps to take care of myself and my family. I’ve been less active on Twitter and Facebook, which are common distractions. I’ve also been ignoring my PR requests folder because I have enough going on and it’s just not healthy always being involved in something and falling behind in those things. Not being able to deliver bruises my ego, deep black and blue. I have learned my lesson. I think over the past 3 years, I’ve written similar posts about being overwhelmed and if I have to write a 4th, I’m kicking my own butt.
I require a lot of down time and I burn out easily, oh and I think I have ADD (so.not.joking). So I have to set aside extra time gaps for the everyday, distractions, and veg days in between deadlines. Some people can keep crankin’ back-to-back-to-back-to-back, I cannot. At least not right now, but some time in the future.
I’ve been making mental notes of the things that I can be doing to be a better person. Things that contribute to my purpose. All of the I don’t do this because of this‘s. I’ve probably done the same thing around the same time last year and the year before that and the year before that. But I’m hell-bent on accomplishing them all. Each year, I am stronger. This year, I’m feeling pretty darn strong… within reason.
I have been trying to focus on the things that make me happy. The fun stuff like spending time with Greg, watching movies and our favorite shows together. (I almost never make time for TV.)
Creating a mini waterpark in the backyard.
Spontaneously stuffing the Power Wheels in the back seat and heading to the park (Greg’s idea :)).
Tending to the garden.
Whipping up a tasty dish with dessert.
Painting on the walls.
My toes too.
It feels good.
